        Proof portrait wood engraving of Harriet Beecher Stowe, and artist's Autograph Letter, signed concerning it, with another engraving of unidentified man

      n.p, 1892. (STOWE, HARRIET BEECHER) Stowe image 9-1/2 x 7-1/4 inches, 14 x 11 inches overall. . Stowe engraving with almost imperceptible tear without loss, others fine. Scribner's Magazine, February 1895, pp. 186-88 . Gustav Kruell (1843-1907) was born in Germany and established himself as an engraver in Stuttgart. He came to the US in 1873, and quickly obtained commissions from the leading illustrated periodicals. He fell under the artistic influence of the famed engraver W.J. Linton, with the result that his portraits took on a clarity and liveliness uncommon in his day. His most famous work is probably the Lincoln of 1891; the following year he produced the superb Stowe portrait offered here (Stowe died in 1896). His Autograph Letter, signed, written from East Orange, NJ to J.R. Mitchel conveying the proof, reads, "Your favor enclosing check if $15.00 for Portrait of Beecher Stowe came to me today--I send the same by express with this. I hope the picture will not disappoint you for I sought for no effect but tried to make every one see into this great woman who could [be?] so calm in a time of greatest excitements as only a true woman can do. Very truly yours, G. Kruell." Also included is a fine 5 x 7 proof portrait of an unidentified man--both it and the Stowe portrait are signed in the plate and in pencil below.

        Mémoires d'une Danseuse Russe. Par E. D. Auteur de Défilé de fesses nues.

      Paris, Sous les Galeries du Palais Royal, 1892. - Tome 1er [2ème et 3ème]. 3 Bände. Kl.8°. XII, 155 S., (1); 182 S., (1); 142 S., (1) und zus. |15 explizit erotische Orig.-Radierungen| auf Japan. Etwas späteres HLeder auf 5 unechten Bünden mit goldgepr. RTitel. |Extrem rare erste Ausgabe| eines der bekanntesten französischen erotischen Romane. Das Werk erschien eigentlich klandestin. Doch aussergewöhnlicher Weise und wohl aufgrund eines Fehlers des Druckers wurde auf der letzten Seite des 3. Bandes der Verleger genannt: Aug. Brancart, Libraire-Editeur, Amsterdam. Und genau dieses Versehen könnte natürlich der Grund für die grosse Seltenheit dieser ersten Ausgabe sein. Dass Brancart vielleicht nie das Werk richtig in den Handel brachte, um sich nicht selbst ans Messer zu liefern. Denn das Werk wurde natürlich sofort als es in die Hände der Behören kam verboten und die Vernichtung angeordnet. Nur bekam die Zensurstelle erst die 2., natürlich jetzt gänzlich klandestine Ausgabe in die Hände. Dass es eine 1. Ausgabe überhaupt gegeben hatte, darauf verwies lediglich ein klandestiner Katalog von 1894, der nur den Titel des Werkes angab und erwähnt, dass eine Suite von 15 Illustrationen dazu erschienen sein. Selbst Perceau schaffte es nicht, die Orig.-Ausgabe aufzutreiben. Sie ist nicht im Bestand der franz. Bibliothèque National und auch weltweit in keiner Bibliothek oder namhaften Erotica-Sammlung zu finden (vgl. Dutel 537). Erst Dutel dokumentiert diese Ausgabe, allerdings ohne den 2. Band! Sowohl Perceau 151-2 als auch Pia 837 können auf diese Ausgabe nur hinweisen und vermuten als Erscheinungsdatum 1894 bzw. 1893. Das Werk ist ausgestattet mit 15 explizit erotischen und teils flagellantischen Radierungen: ein munteres Abbild der vielfältigen, haufreudigen russischen Liebesspiele. Die 2. Ausgabe (1904) erschien ohne Illustrationen. Einbandkanten minimal berieben. Erste und letzte Seiten etwas stockfleckig, Seitenränder teils fingerfleckig und etwas gedunkelt, S. 168 des 2. Bandes mit hinterlegtem Randeinriss, stellenweise leicht braunfleckig. Dutel 537. Vgl. Perceau 151-2 u. Pia 837. --------------- Mémoires d'une Danseuse Russe. Par E. D. Auteur de Défilé de fesses nues. Paris, Sous les Galeries du Palais Royal, 1892. 3 tomes en 3 volumes in-12 (115 x 172mm) dos veau raciné à 5 nerfs, titre doré, vignette sur chaque page de titre (faune trayant une chèvre); XII (Avant-propos et Lettre de Moscou signée Mariska, Ex-danseuse des Théâtres Impériaux), 155, (1); 182, (1) et 142, (1) pages. Bien complet des 15 gravures explicites hors texte. Edition originale sur Hollande, très rare. Pia, Les Livres de l'Enfer, page 444: « L'édition originale a dû paraître en 1893 ou 1894. Perceau, qui s'était efforcé en vain d'en découvrir un exemplaire, signale qu'un catalogue clandestin de 1894 en fait mention comme d'une nouveauté. Selon ce catalogue, elle se présentait en 3 volumes in-12 sur papier de Hollande et l'on pouvait y joindre une suite de 15 figures destinées à l'illustrer. » Page 168 du tome 2 réparée sans perte.

        Varones ilustres de la Compania de Jesus. Segunda edicion.

      Bilbao, 1887-1892. - 9 volumes in-4. Demi chagrin, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure de l'époque). Seconde édition très rare de cet ouvrage important, un des plus estimés du jésuite espagnol d'Eusebio de Nieremberg (1595-1658). La première édition parue sur près d'un siècle, entre 1643 et 1736, est pratiquement introuvable aujourd'hui. Ces 9 volumes retraçant la vie des jésuites les plus éminents dans les missions des quatre partries du monde, sont de la première importance pour l'histoire de l'Amérique (Etats-Unis, Brésil, Canada, Mexique, Perou, etc.), du Japon, de la Chine, de l'Afrique, etc., etc. Sabin dit concernant la première édition: "This work having been published at different periods during the space almost a century, complete sets are excessively rare. The interest of the work is not inferior to its rarity as it contains accounts of many early voyages to the Indies not elsewhere to be fond" . Bon exemplaire. Palau, 191024-9.

        Scenes From the Chiushingura and the Story of Forty-Seven Ronin, Collotyes by K. Ogawa, Descriptive Text by James Murdoch

      K. Ogawa, Tokyo 1892 - Meiji 25 (1892), string tied, decorated cardboard covers, 17 black and white collotypes, 52 pp. Each plate is preceded by a blank tissue guard. The book recreates a very famous incident in 1701 in which Asano Naganori (Lord Asano) was required to commit harakiri. His forty-seven samurai bodyguards, then reduced to the status of ronin, or masterless samurai, took revenge two years later by assassinating Lord Kira Yoshinaka, the individual responsible for Naganori's death. The ronin were then required by the Shogun to commit harakiri and buried with their master. The 17 collotype plates depict key events and settings in the story. Images involving actual characters are reenacted for the photographs. ~ Condition. The book is in Good condition. The covers have light overall soiling and toning. There is a vertical crease on left side of the front cover. The outside corners of the covers (front and back) are dog-eared and some of the internal pages are also. The spine cover, which is seldom seen on these books, is present but loose in some places. There are two gouges on the back cover. On is 1+ inch long and extends through the colophon page and into plate XVI. The other is 3/4 an inch and does not extends into the colophon page. Internally there is scattered foxing but the image areas are clean. Despite the flaws, the book is in above average condition for this book. ~~ More information, to include digital pictures, available on request. ~~~ Bulky book and extra postage will apply.

        Watercolor studies of two children and the head of a young woman, signed "Bemelmans"

      [N.p, n.d.] - Ludwig Bemelmans (1892-1962), Austrian-born American painter and writer, drew on his hotel and restaurant experiences for many of his stories and novels, which he often illustrated with his own sophisticated drawings and watercolors. Although he also wrote for adults, he is perhaps best known for his children's books, notably the Madeline series, one of which, Madeline's Rescue, won the 1954 Caldecott Award.

        Pride and Prejudice - Leather and gilt FINE BINDING

      Roberts Brothers, Boston USA 1892 - A simply gorgeous two volume set, originally issued as a strictly limited edition of 250 copies in 1892, these two copies have been rebound at a later date and to a very high standard indeed. The elegant result magnifies the virtues. The leather spines which wrap around the front and back boards, have gilt titling, and five raised bands. The cover boards are in a hard grain brown cloth, with Jane Austen's signature in gilt on the front. The text blocks have been kept exactly as issued, which means the three edges are attractively untrimmed. The high quality hot pressed paper has taken the text cleanly, as befits the very limited print run of just 250 copies. The frontispiece used for volume one shows Elizabeth, Darcy, and Sir William, and volume two shows Elizabeth and Darcy walking together. Both are clean prints of etchings, and the plate mark shows clearly around them, with tissue guards and captions in red. The grading is Near Fine, but this is taking the age of the books into consideration. The corners of the cloth cover boards are a bit soft. A most attractive and enduring collectable, this beautiful set is bound well enough to last for generations, as befits an imperishable classic. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Humourist

      London: John C. Nimmo,, 1892. A Collection of Entertaining Tales, Anecdotes, Epigrams, &c. 4 volumes octavo (194 × 142 mm) Early twentieth-century tan half morocco on matching linen boards by Bayntun, title gilt to spines, raised bands, French fillet panels to the compartments, single gilt rule spine and corner edges, top edges gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Hand-coloured frontispiece, title-page vignette and 8 plates to each volume. A little rubbed at the extremities, head-caps chipping, minor repairs to volumes 1 & 2 but remains a pretty enough set. First thus, number 251 of an edition of 260. This presented to Harold Nicolson by Horace Rumbold in 1929, inked inscription to the first blank of volume I. Nicolson had served under Rumbold twice, the second occasion being in Berlin 1928, Nicolson resigned from the diplomatic service in September, 1929, and Rumbold retired in 1933. Nicolson described Rumbold in the following terms; "The eye-glass in his eye, the vagueness of response, even the half-opened mouth indicated an attitude of mind which the English could recognise as post-Etonian but which the unwary foreigner sometimes mistook for lack of alertness … he had merely trained himself to appear more English than any Englishman had ever seemed before. And if his manner ever misled a foreigner into underrating his intelligence, that foreigner was quickly disabused" (quoted in ODNB). An excellent association copy.

        Codice Mendieta: Documentos Franciscanos Siglos XVI y XVII

      Imprenta de Francisco Diaz de Leon, Mexico City 1892 - 2 volumes bound in one: xvi+280 pages; 280 pages. Octavo (9" x 5 3/4") bound in full leather with red and black labels on spine in gilt lettering. Nueva Coleccion de Documentos para la Historia de Mexico, volumes IV and V. From the library of George M Foster. Limited to 200 copies. 1st edition. The Codex Mendieta is a collection of documents and letters relating to the writings of Mendieta to his superiors in both the church and state. In volume two there is a discussion of the codex Tlatelolco. This is volumes IV and V of the five volume in the Neuva Coleccion de Documentos para la Historia de Mexico. Joaquín García Icazbalceta defined his primary role as "writing nothing new but gathering materials that others might do so." As a collector, bibliographer, and editor of historical and linguistic documents he received in his life-time and afterwards much well-derserved acclain for meticulously carrying out this important mission. His works have generally withstood the test of time, and are a modern point of departure for serious study of colonial Mexico. About 1849 Garcia Icazbalceta began to form a "Collection of Documents for the History of America," which eventually grew to 87 large volumes, each containing one or more copies of original manuscripts, some of the highest importance. Fortunately, after Garcia Icazbalceta's death his large manuscript collection and important library of 12,000 volumes remained relatively intact. The manuscript collection passed nearly complete by sale to the University of Texas Library in 1937. Condition: Two volumes wonderfully rebound in one volume else a very good to fine set of an extremely rare item. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
